MPD issues phone scam warnings

The Maui Police Department is warning the public about a phone scam where the caller claims to be an officer and tells the caller they have outstanding warrants and need to pay at the sheriff’s office.

The caller then tells the person on the line to seek reimbursement from the county.

The caller is described as a male speaking with a drawl and calling from the number (808) 800-0047.

The Police Department said it would never call an individual about outstanding warrants and ask for payment. If one receives such as call, police say not to give out any personal information, hang up and notify police.
